a democrat or a republican. >> right. >> bill: and president obama mentioned that of all of the people he's ever worked with, he's never seen anybody work as hard as john brennan. he said he didn't think he had slept the entire time he had been in the white house. >> always wearing his suit. brennan probably would have been the c.i.a. director four years ago if it hadn't been the who ha over the -- he withdrew his name in face of the criticism. obama made him a white house adviser instead. >> bill: what i thought was interesting is you had the two former head of defense soon to be former head of defense former head of the c.i.a., acting head of the c.i.a., both there and they were also -- they were both asked to speak and they both endorsed the nominees for the job that they had. which i thought -- added a lot of weight to the president's nominations. >> very much so. very much a preemptive strike having leon panetta and michael morrell who is the deputy director, endorse both of these nominations. president obama himself if you read his remarks carefully you'll see defenses to the things

washington being dysfunctional. if in two years the country wants to elect, you know, a completely democratic house that will agree with everything that the obama administration wants, then we'll do that and we'll electric more democratic senators, the democrats can control the house, the senate and the white house and we'll give the president a rubber stamp on everything and washington will be totally fixed and we'll live in this great, great european country. so maybe it will go that way. but if it doesn't go that way and it's not washington, it's the people that send these representatives to washington who disagree with -- there's a 50/50 people split in this country of people who love entitlements because they're people on the receiving end and there's people on the other side who is funding everything. i don't know. i don't know whether it's a broken washington or we're just at a crossroads in the way the republic is governed and we have to make a decision as a country which way we head. >> right. that's definitely a lot of the ltage. there's still a lot of assets on the other side of th

programs that the democrats criticized at that time. now, obama has institutionalized of those programs. i am very concerned because there is no dissent on those issues. i have another question for you -- guest: the precise circumstances of john brennan's withdrawal -- i don't know them. i think they will come out in the confirmation hearings. the charges against him, some of them, from what i recall -- i think were not completely fair. you just heard me say that i think we need a clear legal framework around interrogation. congress has already banned torture which is something i supported and voted for. i think we could do an even better job there. as far as rendition, my understanding is that we don't do renditions. there was an article that i read recently in "the washington post" talked about the practice that i did not think conform to the old version of renditions. if there are things going on that can be discussed publicly about this subject, i'm sure they will be brought up in the confirmation hearings and it occurs to me that there may be a classified portion to those hearings. i

split. look, barack obama beat mitt romney on foreign policy easily. this is not a guy who walks around in the way that democrats used to for all those years looking over his shoulder at this republican party that america trusts on national security. those days are gone. so i don't think he has the same fears that democrats did in the past. >> let's be frank. the public is very wary on the two wars we've waged. they want them to end. i think that works obviously towards hagel's favor. jo jon warner saved us from ollie north. weekly standard editor bill cross to kristol has been leading the charge against hagel. why is he doing this and why do people listen to his views on foreign policy in i think we know the answer. he's a charmer, he's brilliant, a great networker. anyway, let's watch him. >> whatever else you can say about this war, let me make one point, george bush is not fighting this like vietnam. we don't need to -- >> saddam may be. >> but it's not going to happen. >> let me take a call -- >> this is going to be a two-month war not an eight-year war. >> it's going to be a two-m

concerns raised by mccain at the time and some of the fringe of the republican party barack obama was unfit, unqualified and maybe not even an american. this confirmation hearing will be important. it's obvious even some democrats want to hear answers from senator hagel on a variety of issues. have confidence he will be confirmed unless one of these senators steps forward and says he or she will put a hold on his nomination. i doubt that will happen. as long as that doesn't happen we will have a spirited confirmation and he will be confirmed. >> we get to the point about some democrats being a little tepid. the two of you write about campaign campaigns in game change about the mccain campaign. i know a lot of things are said. so many things happening, the n incoming is so unbelievable for these candidates. do you forget saying someone would be a great secretary of state? do you forget saying that, feeling that, knowing that zblnktsz h? how does that happen? how does senator mccain vote against chuck hagel? >> first, i don't think he has said he will vote against chuck hag hagel. >> how doe
